These are some more light tests for the harman paper. Not pictured are the exposures I did not care for. Most of the testing is seeing if my preflash strategy is good. Instead of doing the consistent paper flash (recommended) I made a diffusing lens cap. I preflash the paper by taking an exposure through the cap of equal length to the normal exposure. The lighter ones in the previous batch of photos are those. The ones here had no preflash. I surprised that they came out better than the preflashed ones which appear
I ordered an 8x10 camera to allow to shoot direct paper positives and hopefully some older processes once I get the hang of it. While waiting I’ve been waiting I shot some of the paper at 4x5. So here’s some experiments.

It’s that time of year again. Omaha’s version of the Maker Fair is happening again over at DOspace on 72nd and dodge. This time around it will be this Saturday April 14 10-4p. The event is a kind of show and tell for people working in emerging technologies. A lot of displays will have hands on stuff for kids.https://www.dospace.org/blog/make-omaha-the-tech-maker-event-of-2019/
I’ll be showing my full collection of 3D mantis prints, the newly completed mantis tomb and other laser etch mantis stuff, some of the stuff related to how I make the models, and I’ll have some live specimens along for the kids.
